I have that book and the analysis of the pluses and minuses of the Pearson 385 was a good illustration. Despite some general reservations about Pearsons as offshore-capable designs, I'd still hitch a ride on one given its conservative-for-today design elements.
Now, the Pearson 39 and the 434 (?) are a little weird-looking CC boats...if I have the model numbers right, they look very boxy, sort of like a Tanzer 29 on steroids.
